Segments and more information:

In “for love or money” we spoke with Edmonton accessory designer Katrina Mastronardi, of Innocent Pride, artist Lon Wenger of Minus Industries, comedian and writer Trent Wilkie of Mostly Water Theatre, blogger Mack D. Male, and Chad Brunet and Colin MacIntyre from CJSR’s Tuesday morning show Makin’ Whoopee. Follow the links on their names or businesses for more information on these great folks.

And thanks again to everyone doing something in their spare time, or for free, to make Edmonton a better place.


Thanks to Darren McPhee for his short “Sunday.” More McPhee hilarity can be found at their YouTube channel.


Thanks to our new Rhyming Dictionary Bureau Chief Jibril Yassin for telling us about a purchase he regrets. (It’s been awhile since we appointed someone to bureau chief.)


The Capital Budget is actually up for renewal this year at City Hall. It’s updated every three years, so it will be interesting to see how all the LRT expansion (without an Expo 2017 bid) might play into things. And there’s that downtown arena.

More on the budget can be found at the City of Edmonton’s website.

And remember to tell them what you think by calling 311 or phoning/e-mailing your councillor.


We are now saving money, thanks to the Servus Alberta 2010 Young and Free Spokester, Kelsey MacDonald. (You can vote for the 2011 Spokester right now.)
